Also see: Induction coil.

An inductor is any oscillator with a row of dead cells down the middle and whose two halves are mirror images of one another, both halves being required for the oscillator to work.

The classic examples are the pulsar and the tumbler. If still lifes are considered as p1 oscillators, then there are numerous simple examples such as table on table, dead spark coil and cis-mirrored R-bee. Some spaceships, such as the brain, the snail and the spider use the same principle.

Alternatively, the term inductor may refer to an induction coil.[1]
